Mexico Caravan Against Repression
Join AFSC and other community members to hear from the Mexico Caravan Against Repression.
This coming week, on November 3, 4, and 5, representatives of seven social movements from Mexico are visiting the Bay Area as part of a national tour, to denounce repression in Mexico and promote solidarity. Caravan participants and speakers include parents of the 43 Ayotzinapa students forcibly disappeared two years ago; representatives of National Coordination of Education Workers (CNTE); San Quintin farm workers; May Our Daughters Return Home from Ciudad Juarez; victims of the June 2016 government attack that killed seven people in Nochixtlan, Oaxaca; and Xochicuautla, an Otomi indigenous community fighting mega-projects and land grabbing.
